Wild Horses Monument  
The Wild Horses Monument is in Central Washington State, near Vantage.

This simple little trek offers visitors some of the most impressive geologic and historic views of the Columbia River area. The uniquely beautiful sculptures at the top of the ridge offer great exposure to one of the most impressive outdoor art pieces in the Northwest. The trail leads out of the parking area and climbs steeply to the fifteen surprisingly lifelike horse sculptures. These beauties stand on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River. Constructed out of welded steel plates, they are the work of Spokane artist David Govedare. The tempered steel ponies were put on the bluff in 1989 for Washington State's Centennial Celebration.

The trail to the top is 1.0 miles round trip, with an elevation of 150 feet.
